I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at QuBit Digital in February 2013.
Interview Details –
I applied directly at their website, and got a response really fast. The HR Assistant was really friendly and emailed me all the details regarding my interview with the Operations Director (HR Manager). As I currently do not live in the UK it was a Skype call.
It was by far the worst interview I have had (not because it was difficult but because of the interviewers negative attitude). The HR Manager was very cocky and had an attitude from the moment the interview started. We started going through the position and how my past experiences would make me a suitable candidate for the position. He would keep probing me on every question he asked. Such as what the difference is between casual blogging and more professional blogging. A good question, yet would not be satisfied with my response. Later on he asked me a few questions regarding what current technological developments I find interesting, and ended by asking me my salary expectations.
Interview Question – There were no hard or unexpected questions, but I would definitely say be prepared to know about recent technological advances and make sure you know your CV and the position you are applying for well, as they will ask very particular and detailed questions on each of the bullet points.

I applied online and interviewed at QuBit Digital.
Interview Details –
Very similar to Google's since the company is led by Product Managers from Google.
Most of their questions are straight from what Google would ask. Though would advise to have a face to face interview rather than phone. Was tough to understand the accent of the interviewer who was from another country.
Interview Question – 1. Pick any product that does not use electricity and describe ways in which you will improve it if you have a budget of $1mn Answer Question
The process took a day - interviewed at QuBit Digital in March 2012.
Interview Details –
After sending CV and a cover letter there was a phone interview. We went through questions like 'why QuBit' and 'why me' for this particular position. They asked me about a current tech innovation I was particuarly interested in, what it was and why I found it interesting. After that they asked a rather odd question - "What do you think was the number of roses sold on Valentine's Day in the UK?". Evidently, as the current intern for the position who was interviewing me said, they wanted to see how analytical I am and what approach I would addopt rather than what particular figure I would give.
After having passed the phone interview they invited me for an interview at their HQ in London. They were very nice and positive. The interviewing process was done by 2 people, one being the current intern for the position. They went through my CV and again asked questions like "why do you want to work with us". Then they asked a series of analytical questions. First one was: if you have a particular number of balls (don't remember the exact figure given), all but one with similar weight and one weighting less, what is the smallest number of weightings you have to make with a scale, so that you find out which one is the lighter one.

The process took a day - interviewed at QuBit Digital in July 2011.
Interview Details – I met the recruiters at a campus recruitment fair and they seemed very energetic and professional. I followed up with an email with my CV attached, and the next day they asked me to arrange a time for telephone interview. They said it was gonna be 15-20 minutes on some technical knowledge, but it turned out to be approx. 45 mins at the end. The questions are about professional knowledge on statistics, both theoretical and practical. This was followed by an office interview in 2 weeks.
